Telltale games are very well-known in the gaming industry for their work on The Walking Dead, a highly popular episodic gaming series based on the TV / Book series of the same name, so who better than them to work on an upcoming Game of Thrones title set in the George R.R. Martin universe (other than Bethesda).
Telltale started the teasing with an image on Twitter, posting a quote from the latest Game of Thrones book, A Dance With Dragons, and we suspect the family name Forrester is emphasized for a reason (see above). House Forrester is a minor clan name that isn’t (yet) featured in the book series, but since we know that this games story will be set concurrently with the main story, a “meanwhile in x” style story line seems the likely course, with a focus on background characters so not to tread on the lore currently laid out by the series.
What we do know of the Forresters is that they’re sworn to House Glover of Deepwood Motte in the North, which holds loyalty to the Starks of Winterfell.
“The show does a great job of interpreting George R.R. Martin’s work, and his work provides a huge dictionary of knowledge about what the franchise is,” Telltale boss Dan Conner previously teased.
“It’s really a dream to sit down and say, ‘What’s our space in this world? Where are we in this world?’ And the world offers you so much to explore.”
The release date is still a mystery, but we do know it’ll be heading to PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
